Re: Poll: where'll it be by WWDC?

While it's an unscientific survey, and we are still in T-score range,
it's interesting that 17 out of 19 voters expect it to climb, and 2 expect it to pull back slightly.

Poll: where'll it be by WWDC?

now that we've broken (at least in intraday) the magical $130/share barrier* it's time to ask the audience where you think Apple will be in June when WWDC kicks off...?

Re: An Apple Watch question

As i believe it has a unique algorithm for verifying that it is on your wrist based on your heart rate info, i imagine (purely speculation though) that there is a security feature tied to that - i.e., if it doesn't authenticate to me, it locks up..?

Re: Bank of America---earnings release

Not surprising in the case of BofA.

If you've ever worked with their internal management team on the retail consumer banking side, it's a surprise they are still in business. So much internal bickering and fiddling while Rome burns.

Re: Greece 'Game On'

hardly. The total sum of the debt owed to german banks by greece would be a painful write-off, but it wouldn't turn them to "dust".

Re: Greece 'Game On'

except all Germany has to do is call their bluff, say "fine, we won't lend you any more money, go ahead and default" and watch Greece turn to dust.

Re: Egg prices soaring

Re: Egg prices soaring

Re: Bandswapper & Apple recurring revenue per wa

10 year old tech looks dorky. I think the Apple Watch will age quickly. I can't see why anyone would pay more than $1000 for a watch that will look stupid in a few years - part of the looking stupid will be how much you paid for something so [more]
